Showdown in Da Bronx
The festivities begin tonight at 7:05 p.m. The Red Hot Sox and Da Bronx Bombas in the first of three. Orlando "El Duque" Hernandez dealing for the Yanks. Brandon Arroyo for the Sox. The Duke has got to be considered the Yankees ace. It will be real interesting to see how he does against the Big Boys from Boston.
With a series sweep the Yanks take a 6.5 game lead and essentially lock up yet another division crown. If the Red Sox sweep (not happening), the Yanks lead will only be half-a-game and we can expect a dogfight to the finish (again, not happening).
The pitching match-ups after tonight: Lowe v. Lieber, Mussina v. Pedro. I say the Yanks take all three and put the sorry saps from Boston out of their regular season misery (with a post-season shellacking not far behind).
